In Reply.—I wish to express my pleasantly surprised regrets to Ms Klein and any other readers who have found my editorial sufficiently interesting to look up its references but... find some of them in error. The correct page numbers of these references are given elsewhere in this issue of AJDC (p 782).

The errors were completely unintentional but I can see how they may yield an unexpected humorous reward for those diligent enough to pursue the bibliography.

Finding an article about spine injuries where one expected an editorial about duplicate publication may be construed as a hint of drastic punitive action contemplated by the editor. Authors beware!
